I won't be getting mine until next year, but I plan on picking up Ryse, Dead Rising 3, and maybe Forza.

Well, as a Forza fan the Day One edition of Forza 5 was a no-brainer. May also grab Dead Rising 3 depending on my mood at the time.

Can't wait for the witty ps4 comment. Will probably wait with the new consoles.

I'm thinking Dead Rising 3 and Assassin's Creed IV at launch.

I'm not buying it at launch, but when I do buy one I'll definitely pick up Forza 5 and maybe Ryse and/or Dead Rising depending on how they turn out.

I haven't really planned it out yet. Does Forza 5 have splitscreen?

I might get Ghosts, Battlefield 4, Black Flag and maybe Dead Rising or Ryse depending on whether they are good.

IF i were to get an Xbox One, I'd get Ryse. No, I'm serious.

Forza 5, Dead Rising, CoD Ghosts, AC4, NFS, Watch Dogs, maybe Battlefield 4, Fifa 14 (because it's in the box).

Probably a couple more. I'm waiting on the reviews for Ryse.

Battlefield 4

  • Dead Rising 3
  • RYSE
  • Battlefield 3 (Maybe)
  • Killer Instinct
  • Crimson Dragon

So far, my list looks like:

  • Forza 5
  • Dead Rising 3
  • Battlefield 4
  • Killer Instinct
  • Crimson Dragon
  • FIFA 14 (free with Day One Edition)

Will also be grabbing one of Watch Dogs/Ryse/AC4 depending on review scores and impressions. I just have no idea about those three games. Everything I see of Watch Dogs makes me less and less excited... Hope it's great!

BF4 = PC

AC4 = PC

Which leaves Ryse / DR 3, because Killer Instinct looks horrible and I don't care for car games. How Ryse and DR 3 will turn out, though, is the real question.

Assassins Creed 4
Watch Dogs
Dead Rising 3
Call of Duty Ghosts.
FIFA 14 - though only because it's free with the preorder.

And that'll probably do me.

Ryse looks like a graphical showcase and nothing more, Dead Rising 3 just sounds like a better Dead Rising with better framerate, more zombies on screen, and 0 loading screens in world which sounds awesome.

  • Fifa
  • Call of Duty
  • Battlefield
  • Need for Speed
  • Dead Rising/Watch Dogs

I am sure Ill get games such as Peggle and Crimson Dragon as well, but it seems like a pretty standard list.

Is Zoo Tycoon actually an indepth experience, or is it watered down for kinect? They both serve a purpose, but I have no interest in the latter version.

It looks decent on the surface, but it seems to lack a lot of depth. Of course I could be wrong, but I will wait for reviews.

Anyway, thanks for the video. Im not sure that I would want to unleash the lions on the giraffes with that graphics fidelity...

Forza 5
Dead Rising 3
Might grab another at random, not sure yet.

Forza 5, Battlefield 4... I kind of want Ryse to be good, because Rome, but it just doesn't look like it's going to be. Kinda tempted to pick up Killer Instinct, too, if only for nostalgic reasons. Used to play the hell out of the original on my SNES.

Probably just Forza 5 and wait for reviews on anything else.

Dead Rising, Battlefield 4 and AC4 are guaranteed. I really, really want Forza, Watch_Dogs and Ryse but I'm on a budget and I'll pick them during/after Christmas.

On launch day, Dead Rising 3 and Forza 5, been a fan of Forza since the first one and I'm a huge petrol head and Top Gear fan, how can I not get it. AC4 on my next paycheck. My roommate is getting Ryse and Watchdogs so I can just borrow those.

I'm picking up Dead Rising 3 and Watch_Dogs for sure depending on reviews I may pick up Assassins Creed 4 as well. Also depending on reviews I may download either Crimson Dragon or Lococycle.

Dead Rising 3, Killer Instinct (pin edition, because I hate my life) and PEGGLE 2!!!!!!!!!!!!!

#33 Posted by isomeri (2826 posts) -

Just Forza 5 at launch and I think I'll buy the upgrade for a full version of Killer Instinct. I'm getting that free copy of FIFA14, but I'll sell or give it away if I can. After I've fiddled with those enough I'll probably download Watch Dogs and Dead Rising 3 as well if it turns out to be any good.

Ok correction AC IV and Dead Rising 3 since they delayed Watch_Dogs.

Watchdogs was on my list but with that delayed I'm sticking with Ryse, Forza, Battlefield, and Dead Rising.

Forza 5

Dead Rising 3

COD: Ghosts... because why not?

Peggle 2

That's probably it for now... I'm half tempted to get Zoo Tychoon and the Lego Marvel game ... I'll probably get the latter.

Definitely Killer Instinct and Crimson Dragon, maybe Dead Rising 3 if I like what I see.

I'm torn: Forza looks great, but I never play racing games enough. Battlefield 4 is a maybe for multiplayer; Dead Rising would be my first Dead Rising game, so not sure, will wait for reviews. Same goes for Call of Duty.

Looks like my first game will be snapping between apps and playing Fifa, which I never play because I'm not into soccer although British.

Since Watch Dogs is getting delayed to next year, which is "good?" for the Swedish people, only I care about, haha. So at launch i can save up to X1, Ghosts, Watch Dogs, Black Flag and Dead Rising.

I am surprised the amount of people saying dead rising 3,

I pre ordered a couple of weeks ago and there were no create your bundle on the website, just various ones and the only one that kinda interested me was the day one console and dead rising 3, even though it had kinda gone off my radar

So will be getting dead rising 3, fifa 14 is already in the box, and was going to get watch dogs but most probs be either call of duty or forza as well

If I keep my pre-order I will probably pick up Dead Rising 3 and maybe Forza 5. Looking forward to checking out some of the download only games like Crimson Dragon, Killer Instinct, and maybe Lococycle. Also interested in checking out the Xbox Fitness thing. Oh and I might rent Ryse.

Well, as of this morning, considering what has been announced, what's been cancelled, and everything in-between, here's my list:

  • Battlefield 4 (Love me some BF)
  • Forza 5 (/drool. And it has all the Top Gear UK talent...and the Stig)
  • Killer Instinct (Love KI/fighting games...hopefully this is worthy of the name)
  • Dead Rising 3 (Love the DR series, Watch_Dogs delay sealed this one)
  • Crimson Dragon (Panzer Dragoon!!!!)

And I will most likely be GameFly'ing the following:

  • NBA2K14 (looks amazing, I love basketball, but I suck at basketball games)
  • RYSE (until proven otherwise, still looks like a great tech demo)
  • Need for Speed (looks like another fun arcade-y racing game)
  • Madden 25 (gotta see what Madden looks like)
  • Assassin's Creed IV (need to finish III first, but I'm slightly excited for this)
  • FIFA 14 (gotta see next-gen FIFA)

Hopefully they'll have a bunch of digital offerings other than LocoCycle and Zoo Tycoon at launch, and I'm guessing we'll hear about those as we get closer to launch...but that's my list as it stands today.
